These scammers can be quite creative. I am a German living in Malysia, together with my family.
One day my wife got a friend frequest from one guy from Switzerland. He was looking for some information related to living in Malaysia becasuse he
would also soon work here.
But his trip was delayed. He applied for a director position at one of the big petrol companies here. He got the job and they sent him documents to
sign together with $10.000 in cash for his expences/ticket purchase and so on. But too bad, the package was stopped at customs in London. They asked
him to pay 2000 Euro for release and apologized, he will get the money back. That happened a second then in Netherlands. The release was 1000 Euro
and each time he had to transfer the money to accounts, located in that particular country.
Family and friends told him, thats a scam! Dont pay! But he payed... he gave up his safe job for this new opportunity. The scammer did a really good
job to convince him that this is the real deal.
He applied online about a year ago with the response, that he would have been a good candidate, but unfortunately someone else got the job. Then 6
months later they sent an email, whether he is still interested or not. The other candiate jumped off.
He was and they did an interview via skype. Then he had to wait for another two weeks until they told him , "Congratulations, you got the job!" What
they offered sounded very good, with a car (better Toyota), working only 4 days a week and just from 10am to 3pm. At least two free trips back to
Switzerland per year and a generous salary.
He also had a contact in Malaysia he called many times. It was a well engineered scam from A to Z and quite some people over the globe must have been
